Ink drawings

It was a bad idea, staying up so late to finish some work for my course. I really shouldn’t have: In the end I managed to get the paperwork done but I realised too late that I didn’t have enough time to finish a piece I wanted to present. I had to leave it at home.

Oh well! It felt like a tragedy in the morning, but a few hours later I don’t think it was a tragedy any more.

I’ve cooled down. I handed in my work. I came home. I rested. I had my lunch. I collected my work back and came home again.

And I decided to put things on paper and think of something I could do for the next few minutes to improve my mood. It’s similar to what I came up with on my ppp cards.

I enjoy writing on this blog. And I enjoy sharing my drawings. Once the term is over it’s easy to overthink about how it should have been, what I should have done differently…I’m sure overthinking won’t help me right now, so I’d rather share these instead:

Sketchbook drawings

ink and wash (Actor’s church) I used a Pentel brush pen refilled with washable ink.

For this drawing I used Parker ink and wash (unfortunately my pen was clogging from using the wrong ink previously).

Again a Pentel brush pen. This time with the Pentel cartridges. The ink is waterproof.

(Caledonian Road tube station) Very dry marks from a clogged Pentel brush pen. I’d  refilled it with Indian ink and soon started to notice the ink slowing down. It was a good reminder to use fountain pen ink only or Pentel cartridges

(Ballet dancer and Royal Opera House) This was done with Parker ink. The colour is not as strong as Pentel’s, but it is washable so you can get those subtle middle tones.
